Stitch painted by hand on 13 count canvas. Overall design area is 14″ x 9″. The quote is by Mark Twain.
“The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world’d luxuries, king by grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tasted it, he knows what the angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took: we know it because she repented.”
